In the midst of a study of ways to improve access for bicyclist and pedestrians to the Hwy. 101 interchange with East Blithedale Avenue and Tiburon Boulevard, the Transportation Authority of Marin and the City of Mill Valley are hosting a Community Bicycle and Pedestrian Workshop on the issue on January 29 at the Mill Valley Community Center.

The interchange features 10 bus stops and a number of walking paths and bicycle routes. “Everyday, hundreds of pedestrians walk to or from one of the interchange’s bus stops or between Mill Valley and Strawberry, TAM officials said. “Recreational, commuter and tourist bicyclists travel along the overpass in large volumes, sharing the outside travel lanes with motorists accessing the on-ramps. At the same time, over 70,000 vehicles use the interchange daily.”

A second community workshop will be held in Spring 2015 to present potential short-term, medium-term, and longer-range options for the Hwy. 101 interchange.

The 411: The Community Bicycle and Pedestrian Workshop is set for Thursday, January 29, 6 to 8 p.m. at the Mill Valley Community Center, 180 Camino Alto, Send comments or questions or ask to receive email updates about the study and upcoming meetings to Nick Nguyen, Project Manager, Transportation Authority of Marin, (415) 226-0831,, or Senior Engineer Scott Schneider, City of Mill Valley at (415) 384-4818 or by email at
